Leicester eased into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 4-0 win against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Luton boss Graeme Jones made 10 changes to the side which lost 3-0 at home to Hull on Saturday in the Championship with Luke Bolton the only survivor from that starting XI.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has made seven changes from the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday as Jonny Evans, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez were the four who kept their places.

The Foxes came into the game on a high note after the weekend’s action and they had the first effort of note in the 10th minute when Marc Albrighton stung the palms of James Shea.

Chances remained at a premium but the Premier League side got their noses in front on 34 minutes when Albrighton played in a low corner and it was met by Demarai Gray who steered his effort into the far corner beyond Shea from 12 yards.

Leicester remained in control and they extended their lead a minute before half-time when James Justin, who joined the Foxes from Luton in the summer, guided a superb Tielemans’ cross past Shea at the back post to cap his debut with a goal.

The visitors continued to dominate after the break with Wes Morgan, Ndidi, Albrighton and Perez all forcing saves from Shea.

It was no surprise when Leicester did get a third goal on 79 minutes when Tielemans met a Gray cross from the right and hit a sweet volley beyond Shea.

Kelechi Iheancaho put the icing on the cake as he just managed to dink the ball over Shea to make it 4-0 three minutes from time.
